Subject: Better batteries for iPod videos

Better batteries for iPod videos

Hi everyone, I'm using Rockbox on my 5.5G iPod video, and frankly, while I
love Rockbox, I
can't stand the fact that the battery drains so quickly that I have to
scramble for the charger
on an almost daily basis. I know part of the reason is because a lot of
power management hasn't
been optimized for Rockbox quite yet, but another part is because of that
weaksauce 400 mAh
battery that Apple used for it.

I wanted to know if there's a nice, higher capacity battery that'll fit the
iPod video, and give me longer
playing time. I don't like that I'm getting just under 4 hours on normal use
with my iPod; although
with recent builds, it's stretching to about closer to 5 hours. And good
suggestions for a better
battery? Thanks!
